I did not have a radical hysterectomy, mine was a total vaginal hysterectomy, kept ovaries...my cancer was caught as early as it could be (Stage 1a1). Will you keep your ovaries? I have read many success stories from women who have had a hysterectomy (including radical). I have recovered quite well, it's been over four months now and I sometimes forget that I've had the surgery. Every body is different though. Your best bet is to really talk with your oncologist about how you will feel after, and get some direction from him/her. Also, there is a really good site out there (can't name it unfortunately, healthboards rule) that offers hysterectomy support and loads of information to women on what to expect with their surgery. It is by far the most comprehensive site I found to prepare me for my surgery.
I'm sorry that you have been diagnosed so young. I'm 33 myself, I was 31 when we were surprised with the cancer. It took me a long time to work through the medical system, learn to advocate for myself, but I'm finally in a spot where I feel like a whole healthy person again. I hope your surgery goes well for you on the 8th. I check in every once in awhile, so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
